Childhood Vintage Pull Toy

Here is one of my favorite toys from when I was a kid. My mom just found it in the attic. I can’t see any markings on it, but I just learned from my Facebook friends that it’s from Brio in Sweden. Such a great design!

Very short movie below if you want to see it in action!

    Hi Joel! Your blog and book is so inspiring, i really like it! Brio is really popular all so in Finland, my generations think that wood is the best material on the toys. My kids is playing with my 24 years old Brio toys, and they all look like a new, just like your Brio :)

    We kids had one in the early 1970s as well. It is mesmerizing to watch as it rolls!! :-) Here is a current Brio toy which is similar, if anyone is looking for a fun toddler gift.
